People are confusing terroristic threats and terriosm. He's not being charged with terrorism, he's being charged with terroristic threats. In the eyes of the law, there is a very distinct difference or at least that's my understanding of it.

It's a slippery slope when you start using names like that. That's all I'm sayin'.

I definitely see what you're saying.

Shocker.

Wonder if his market heats up now or if teams think he's done.

I'm a bondsman. I get people out of jail all the time with "terroristic threat" charges. 60% of the time it's a guy who got into a verbal altercation, and told the other party that they would (in varying phrases)beat them up. Rarely was there a physical assault. Usually just a threat of assault.

So in most instances a "terroristic threat" charge isn't as egregious as an "assault'" charge. Makes no sense but that's the way it is.


It's also pretty common for Terroristic threat charges to be tacked on to assault charges. A little legal advice here: If you are beating someone up, try your best to keep your damn mouth shut. Many times guys are hurling death threats as they are laying into the other guys face. If you can punch in silence then you protect yourself from getting a terroristic threat charge on top of your assault.

What about the other three felonies? What a joke.

The entire NFL should be ashamed.

His friend came forward and said he's the one that knocked the two guys out. The two guys didn't see who hit them, couldn't confidently say it was Revis.

Not sure what else anyone can do.

Why? What does the rest of the league have anything to do with this?


So all charges were dropped because Revis' buddy admitted to knocking out both of the young men and uttering the threats. This is why you have encourages. Laughing

I wonder if the league will still punish him?

Because the average person on the street would be thrown in jail with the key locked away if they had even one or two felonies pending against them much less 4 or 5.

This is just another example of a famous and rich person hiring the best lawyer possible and somehow skirting jail time. Just like all the dozens upon dozens assaults and domestic violence cases which for normal people is guaranteed jail time, but for NFL players its a court hearing and then nothing.

I also want to say, the Pittsburgh police is also at fault as well, for almost sentencing someone to as much as 65 years of prison for a crime they didnt even commit. Tons of blame to go around here.

Burn down pittsburgh it's the only solution to the rampant crime problem.

But Revis getting off scott free is just lolworthy.
